      Correct. But an adult who can't sit down and put those abstract concepts into words when the situation calls for it is a dum dum

      You might read faster by not having inner-dialogue read everything as you go along, but you read better imo.

      >can't inner monologue in parallel & interplay between multiple faculties--imagery, music, kinesthetic, etc.
      >can't improvise lyric poetry that accords with imagery synesthetically conjured from music, etc.
      This either/or meme trash is as tiresome as being told that old joke about chewing gum and walking at the same time 1000 times a day.

      That can't be real.
      I can't comprehend "thinking" without subvocalization or at least invoking symbols in your minds eye.
      How would you evaluate anything at all? You'd just be spouting random bullshit every time.

        Except it is real. Some people can't hear their thoughts.

          Does this mean they can't have earworms? They can't imagine music?
          What about dreams, surely they still have those? I don't feel much of a difference between thoughts in a dream and thoughts irl.
          What a dreadfully dull existence.

      I shall take this bait.

      This is retarded. You should be able to toggle between thinking in any number of modes, English being only one of many. No one is stupid enough to think in English during a fight or flight situation, and no one is stupid enough to think thought occurring exclusively in English is anything but inefficient.

        The "bait" was the impetus to engage with the concept as a possibility. You did not take the bait.

    No, the NPC meme itself stems from a misunderstanding of psychological studies a couple years ago on r9k. Now the NPC meme is just a political tool to dehumanise the average layman. Also your image is completely wrong because it's established many times in the anime that Rei has no thoughts or personality of her own outside of the vaguest questionings of her existence.

          The NPC meme is real kiddos and can be exposed through reading comprehension.

            say something slightly ambiguous, players will ask you to clarify your statement, NPC will just make an incorrect assumption about what they think you are saying based on their personal biases/motives

    >It turns out that it is possible to distinguish a zombie from a person. A zombie has a different philosophy. That is the only difference. Therefore, zombies can only be detected if they happen to be philosophers. Dennett is obviously a zombie.

          I hate discussions about zombies because if they go on long enough people reveal an ulterior motive that makes me discard their entire argument. There's never a good faith argument about zombies. That's why people get so emotional about this stuff, because their religion/faith/views of the universe underlie it. This thread is just more proof of that.

          >"this is dumb"
          What you have established with this complaint is one of two things.
          1: This line of logic is pedestrian and bores you
          2: This line of logic is about you, and you are lashing out
          As you can see, we have learned nothing about you by your comment, except that that interpretation automatically implies the second. In communicating nothing, you have effectively communicated meaning you never intended.

    Sociology is another art of lying with statistics and not science, and you should ask somebody like biologist or control circuit designer if NPCs are real.

    I don't know if NPCS are real, but sometimes i wonder if they are, look at posts on social networks from morons who say two things that contradict each other and believe them.

    Yes.

    Inner monologue theory is fun because most people have verbal thoughts or visual thoughts. A certain percentage of people do NOT have EITHER. While its fine to call them NPC, thats not the real problem of NPC.

    NPCs are people who do not have critical thinking. Who do not question the narrative. People who regurgitate word babble without understanding what they're saying. People who parrot words/phrases they hear from other sources. That applies to not just left wing political party but also right wing, and its not just a political domain, it applies to every type of discources. You have the science NPCs who parrot science factoids without understanding what it means. You have the news paper NPCs who parrot whatever news paper prints out. You have the social NPC where they parrot whatever other people are saying. These types of people exists everywhere and behave similarly to a GPT bot. They don't exhibit intelligence but rather behaves like a common house parrot.
